I have enjoyed a variety of teaching experiences throughout my career. I have directed and taught a bilingual (English/Spanish) early childhood center, taught 3/4 year old preschool, kindergarten, 1-8 Spanish, and English to adults. I am especially fascinated with early childhood development, language development, and literacy.

Besides teaching at Crown of Life, I am involved in a new Spanish-speaking mission at my home church, St. John – San Juan in St. Paul, where my husband is the pastor. I also love to write, play piano, watch my kids play sports, and explore my east side Hispanic community.

My husband and I have three sons, a daughter, and two dogs. Our oldest is a first year college student. The other three are in highschool. And our dogs are “homeschooled”.
